We've had this discussion before.  It seems to me that the mainstream news lives in fear of calling anyone out, but this one honestly takes the proverbial cake.  Apparently after a twitter follower of CNN asked why no one was asking the obvious questions to experts, a CNN "news anchor" -we will use the term news very loosely- agreed to ask his "experts"  -we will use the term expert very loosely-on the missing Malaysian flight the obvious question.  Ready?

CNN Host Don Lemon asked, "...people are saying to me, why aren't you talking about the possibility — and I’m just putting it out there — that something odd happened to this plane, something beyond our understanding?”

This was followed by guest Brad Meltzer of Decoded, "People roll their eyes at conspiracy theories, but what conspiracy theories do is they ask the hardest, most outrageous questions sometimes, but every once in a while they’re right." Meltzer's Decoded is a show all about conspiracy theory. It appears on what was once the History Channel, for those of you who have never seen the show. Can you say "product tie-in?"
